James has had a little experience WWOOFing before, as have many friends. We're inspired to meet people living off the land, building and growing things with their hands and practicing different ways of living. We hope to learn new skills, open our minds to new ideas and have fun.

I believe in the near future we will have to be much more self sustaining than we are and I am looking to gain as much knowledge as possible on growing food, working with animals, building and especially off-grid living

I started doing a horticulture course online a few years back and just didn't commit to it. I thought maybe it wasn't the course for me but it turns out it's just not my style of learning. I don't enjoy sitting and staring at screens. That's a big part of wanting to be outside in the elements. So now I'm doing a permaculture course at Crystal Waters on the Sunny Coast next month (AUG 2021). I hope that will get me started along this journey as I have very limited knowledge on the whole thing as yet. When telling a friend about the course they mentioned WWOOFing and I figured that this would be a fantastic way to exchange my labour for education.

I joined WWOOF to learn both sustainable farming practices and to get a glimpse at how other Queenslanders live. I'm travelling and figured that getting my hands dirty would be the best way to gain new experiences and to extend my stay in a new places. I'm hoping to get a 'slice of life' from around our state.

'Kurrajong,' my property is situated on the far south coast of NSW in Yuin Country. My outlook is to the North West but I am only 10 mins drive from lovely National Park beaches and the coast. I have 5 acres of mostly farmland and some forest with tall Forest Red Gums and Kurrajong trees featuring in the valley. I have horses and large gardens to care for and am still trying to build my house out of recycled timbers and tin. I could offer self-contained accommodation for anyone willing to help in my garden and weeding paddocks as I don't use any pesticides. I am completely off the grid and on stand alone solar and water. I am a writer and an educator so I work from home on my creative projects when not teaching or tutoring. I have an old dog and used to have a lot of poultry but foxes took them all after the fires came through in 2020. I was very close to the fire front and it was rather frightening. So I have been working hard to get my house protected. There would be plenty of small building projects if that was something you were interested in. There is no public transport near my place so you would need your own transport although I and many kind people living in the area would help out I am sure. We call it paradise down here as the waterways are pristine and the area lush but we try to remain reasonably quiet about that.

I've just fledged my youngest child and I'm up for new adventures. WWOOF seems like a safe and fun way to be a solo traveler. As I age, I am becoming more interested in sustainability in all it's guises - food, housing, internal wellbeing. I know very little about gardening and permaculture, but I'd like to learn more. During this year of pandemic I've been delighted to grow veggies in my urban back garden. It's been a lovely creative outlet to make soup from my own ingredients. What do I hope to achieve by WWOOFing? Such an interesting question. I don't know and I'm leaning in to the discomfort of not knowing. At the very least, connection to new folk and new ideas with the opportunity to exchange my skills and ideas.

Hello! It's a great time of year up at our place! We are a family of four - Todd, Kate, Wimitja (15) and Kinyin (11). We are in the Adelaide Hills but only 15 - 20 minutes from the city center. Good access by public transport. Non smokers only. It is green and beautiful here with loads of great walks, views and animals to see. We are close to the city and a bus route but in the hills with koalas and kangaroos around... We have raised traditional Mongolian yurt which you can sleep in if you like - it is BEAUTIFUL and wwoofers so far have loved it!  We are working on all the associated projects - making woven fences out if vine prunings, making paths, drainage, planting natives. We have been WWOOF hosting for many years now and really enjoy sharing life with people from all around the world. Stories, food, work, laughs and all that comes in between. We want to enjoy hosting you and we want you to enjoy being here! We work on our 3 1/2 acre property with animals, fruit trees, loads of berries, native bush and other garden areas. We are slowly working to make the land and garden more productive and the bush free from ferals. Todd works with homeless people in the city of Adelaide which is 20 minutes away or 1 hour by bike. Kate is a teacher who works with children and young families in Steiner or Waldorf Education from our property running Steiner Nature Playgroups. Our older son breeds chickens and our younger son loves his pet rabbits. Lacey the dog will love you for ever if you throw the ball for her! We enjoy cooking, gardening, preserving food, slow cooking and spending time as a family. We value community and believe in being part of something bigger than ourselves. We love travel but don't do as much these days and hosting WWOOFers is a way to bring bits and pieces of the world alive in our every day life. If you would like to come and spend time with us we prefer stays of one week - then negotiable. We enjoy people who are self motivated and looking to enjoy their days. We love it if you have great skills but are also fine if you are pretty new to it all but are happy to learn. Our home is a place for an open mind and complete respect for each person. No drugs, no smoking and no excessive drinking - let's work, learn and enjoy the days together. Everyone helps with cleaning up after meals and preparing food - your gender is irrelevant! If you are interested in gardening, cooking, permaculture, preserving food, community, Steiner or Waldorf education, telling stories and enjoying good food - this could be for you! The work here is a mix of home and garden and is seasonally dependent - give us a call to see what is happening at the moment. A typical day might include mulching, pruning, weeding, collecting stones for wall building or weaving sticks into fences, planting, preserving seasonal fruit and veg, cleaning and mending in and around the house, etc. We like to provide a variety of jobs and also work to people's skill set. We would love to host an electrician or plumber or builder!!! We limit our screen use but there is wifi available in the house. Our family prefers to enjoy people and life first hand! We enjoy eating together and telling stories and laughing over the meal. We love it when visitors want to cook a meal or two using a recipe from their family or home. We eat a small amount of meat but are most happy to cater for vegetarians as Kate until recently was vego! There is a wealth of things to do around our place in free time - there is a bus to the city to do city based things but we are also close to Mount Lofty, Cleland Wildlife park and our house 5 minutes walk to the Heysen Trail. You can regularly see kangaroos and koalas in the bush around our property and we back onto Horsnell Gully National Park. There is lots of good bush walking around. We look for visitors to work 5 hours a day and to negotiate days off in balance with this. We all share preparing for meals and cleaning up afterwards. Visitors have their own private room and use of the main bathroom (we have an ensuite for us). We are on tank water and solar heating so visitors must be mindful of water usage. No smokers at all.

He completed a Permaculture Design Certificate 35 years ago and upgraded the landscaping business to an edible landscape business shortly after. He then opened 3 nurseries in Sydney selling organic herbs, vegetables and ferns. He worked in the Findhorn Community in Scotland for 3 years looking after a nursey section, market garden and a large tunnel house growing summer crops. Directly after that he managed a 1 ½ acre market garden supplying vegetables to The Columbus Hotel on the Isle of Iona.

As a family we have been hosting Willing Workers on Organic Farms for over 18 years. We are looking for an energetic person with a strong work ethic with a physical working background and general gardening experience is preferred. There are also many building projects so any skill in that area is a bonus. This experience would suit someone who wants to learn how to manage land and grow their own food organically or is interested in becoming a permaculture teacher, designer, landscape gardener, nursery manager or market gardener.

I joined WWOOF quite simply to learn.  The idea of trying to live more sustainably has sat in the back of my mind for many years, and now with a little more time available to me I feel this is a great time to take my time. Reading about it doesn't work for me, I need to be hands on for things to really sink in. I so enjoy being  and working in the outdoors and getting my hands dirty, Being productive makes me happy. I may not have any WWOOFer experience to bring yet but I bring a whole lot of life experience, a willingness to work hard and a total enjoyment of meeting new people.

I’m wanting to get out and meet new people and learn new things. I’m interested in learning more about natural building, organic farming, anything to do with plants/ food how to grow, look after and harvest. I’d like to gain life skills doing things in a sustainable way that cares for the planet. I’d like to be a part of a community that works together, shares ideas and grows as one while interfacing with natural environment. Hoping that by joining WWOOF I'll be able to meet some like minded people and find connections.

My work and studies shed an insight into why I want to start WWOOFing. I am passionate about sustainable resource management and agriculture but have spent most of my career at a desk. I am itching to get outdoors and gain some practical skills and experience on the land. I grew up in the Hunter Valley and have fond memories of riding quad bikes, milking cows, and collecting eggs on friends' farms. I've had a bit of experience in tree planting, floral data collection and habitat assessments through my degree.

I’ve never really worked in a farm before so I thought this is perfect way to break that barrier. I also love to meet new people and I think volunteering is the best way to do that. (Obviously its a cheap way to travel too) 😉

I think WWOOF is a good way to make yourself useful and get to know about permaculture, local life, people and the country at the same time. I got very much interested into permaculture during my first WWOOF stay and I would be happy to start my own veggie/fruit garden when I get back home. I love being surrounded by natural wide spaces. It's a precious source of inspiration for me.
